WATCH: Addressing the Injustice of Global Food Distribution: A Primer
Posted By dpacheco On March 19, 2010 @ 10:30 am In Garden & Agriculture | No Comments
This charming cartoon from Denis van Waerebeke breaks down the problem of global food distribution imbalances in easy-to-understand terms with a pleasing design and a Douglas Adams-tinged voiceover.
To boil it down, the food choices you as an individual make have a real impact on the health and economic situation of people halfway around the world. The first step to fixing the problem is to look at what’s on your plate and make responsible and informed choices.
This basic (okay, very basic) video by Denis Van Waerebeke  is as good a way as any to begin a dialogue. Encompassing everything from why farmers in poor parts of the world often go hungry  to how giving up steak can be a small step towards correcting the unbalanced worldwide food market, the video serves as a sort of “Story of Stuff” for global food distribution.
